    • Hi Roberta,

      If you go to the USAPA Places to Play site and search for Tucson you should find several options listed there. You can also contact the clubs mentioned here, as most are happy to accommodate visitors if you get in touch with them ahead of time. Hope you have a fun trip!

  3. Hi,this is Dale Secord SE Tucson Ambassador for USAPA. In the article about volunteering as an Ambassador could you change my phone # to 593-467-9915? Thanks
    Also you may wish to update the article to include new area ambassadors

      8 couples in their mid 60’s from all over the country will be staying at the Loews Ventana Canyon resort from March 6-10, 2019 to celebrate a graduation anniversary. As the organizer I am looking for pickleball courts where I might reliably reserve a couple hours of play on one or more days during our stay. The resort does have a pro shop and tennis courts but no provisions for pickleball. Given the sports popularity this will no doubt prove to be a challenge. I know my former classmates and their spouses will take to the game as Jeanie and I have. I will continue to search all websites for information but would appreciate any guidance you can provide. Feel free to text or call.
